A compassionate woman haunted by her past. A mysterious man who leads her to love. And the dangerous secret that is stronger than both of them.
Kelsey Stewart is not thinking of love or adventure when she visits her aunt at her peaceful seaside inn nestled in beautiful Carmel, California. But when she is urged to help in the recuperation of Jody Hammond, a young boy who fell from a sea cliff, she finds her troubled heart coming back to life. And soon she finds herself falling in love with Jody's father, the mysterious, handsome Tyler.
Although Jody Hammond and his mother Ruth have survived a terrible fall off the ocean cliffs at Carmel, Calif., Jody can't speak or recognize anyone, and his tyrannical father, Tyler, gives up hope for his recovery. In the Hammond household at La Casa de la Sombra, life has never seemed hopeful anyway, troubled as it is with dark secrets from the past. Meanwhile, Kelsey Stewart, struggling to forget the death of her own small son, has arrived in Carmel to stay with her aunt, the owner of a local inn. A therapist for brain-damaged children, Kelsey offers to help Jody, but her efforts seem blocked by mysterious forces. Visiting Flaming Tree ranch where a Hammond friend was murdered, she unravels the shocking story that has kept Jody silent. A skilled and graceful storyteller, Whitney provides a romantic backdrop for the novel in her descriptions of Carmel and the Monterey Peninsula. Paperback rights to Fawcett; Literary Guild selection.
